Are you sick and tired of switching channels between some Indian (dragged) soap and a dubbed Turkish drama?? Let’s go back in time and reminisce about the top 5 Pakistani drama’s that had us and will still have us (if we plan to watch them) glued to our TV screens.
Perhaps, one of the most famous dramas of our time (not really) is;
A huge star cast- Fawad Khan, Sanam Baloch, Ahsan Khan, Saba Qamar and Mehreen Raheel gave exceptional performances to match Samira Fazal’s script.
Directed by Haissam Hussain, this is a classic love story between a nation and its people. A chaotic partition and two individuals, torn apart by events far beyond their reach- Hassan (Fawad) and Bano (Sanam) will make you cry a river.
An emotional masterpiece written by Farhat Ishtiaq and directed by Sarmad Khoosat, Humsafar was based on pure love, jealousy and the conquest of forgiveness.
Apart from making this one of the best serials ever, this skyrocketed Mahira (Khirad) and Fawads (Ashar) career and fame!
Their on screen chemistry was juts goals!
3. Alif Noon
A comedy series that dealt with some basic Pakistani society issues such as fraud, cheating and scam. The characters Allan and Nannha, who are complete opposites have got me hooked with their humor within 3-4 episodes now!
This is definitely worth a try.
Written by Faiza Iftikhar and directed by Baber Javed, this drama discusses the distressing tale of child rape and how our society fails the victim.
This is such a versatile and remarkable serial that speaks volume of our current situation in Pakistan, it needs to be brought back on televisions!
5. Meri Zaat Zara-e-Benishan
Another masterwork by the distinguished director Baber Javed, Samiya Mumtaz and Faysal Qureshi beautifully display how modesty and virtue can be used against a woman.
This serial reached a milestone in Pakistani television and reminds us that some things can never be taken back.
